This month's tag recalls to mind my most favorite television series of all time, Homefront. It tells the story of the Metcalf family from Ohio and the patterns of their days during World War II. Beautifully filmed with characters to love and hate, a dreamy Big Band score I can still hear in my head.
My favorite character was Ginger, a shop girl dreaming of fame and fortune. Her wardrobe to die for, she was the type of girl to wear red lipstick when it was considered to be racy.
The most fun about Ginger was watching her fall in love with childhood friend Jeff Metcalf who at once could irritate her to no end and then melt her heart in the very next moment.
Each week I couldn't wait to tune in to see if true love would be making headway for these two characters always bickering over whose dreams were most important at the moment.
The complete television series Homefront can now be found on DVD.
